Bahrain recently launched the Aqari Data Bank, a real estate data bank platform, one of the many e-services initiated by the kingdom’s Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA).

Aqari Data Bank is an artificial intelligence (AI) powered platform that provides real estate agents with all the necessary information about the sector.

H.E. Sheikh Khalid bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, deputy prime minister; H.E. Sheikh Salman bin Abdullah Al Khalifa, president of Survey & Land Registration Bureau (SLRB); H.E. Sheikh Salman bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, minister of finance and national economy; along with several ministers, officials, and heads of real estate companies attended the launch.

The deputy prime minister said that launching the Aqari platform reflects the foundations of good governance on which government work is based. Moreover, Aqari’s launch will help strengthen integration among government agencies and enhance strategic planning.

Aqari is part of RERA’s initiatives in digital transformation that aligns with Bahrain’s National Real Estate Plan (2021-2024). It aims to create a sustainable real estate sector and transform the industry into a positive engine for growth.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Khalid bin Abdullah stressed that keeping pace with the developments in the real estate sector helps Bahrain keep in step with best international practices.

He also underlined the importance of integrating advanced technologies to serve customers. Hence, Aqari aims to facilitate their experience by following the principles of disclosure, clarity, and transparency. This enhances their confidence and enables them to make sound decisions.
